Chevalier College sits on 100 acres, with sprawling playing fields and an on-site farm. Classrooms and learning spaces form an inner precinct, connected by pathways and roads protected from vehicular access during school hours. Two exciting new learning spaces opened in 2019 at Chevalier College.
Our newly extended and refurbished Performing Arts Centre has been architecturally designed and constructed with contemporary features to bring a real theater experience to our students and reflect the calibre of talent within our school.
The performance theater gained spacious backstage areas, a sizable green room and rehearsal spaces; new change rooms, accessible amenities, and an impressive new foyer. Individual and communal practice rooms and dedicated dance and drama studios also form part of the centre. Considerable investment was made in the acoustics of the performance and rehearsal spaces and many local and overseas artists hire these facilities for concert performances and lectures, including the biennial Southern Highlands International Piano Competition, ‘Selby and Friends’ annual concert series, and The Royal Society for their monthly lecture series.
Our new two-storey Multipurpose Hall is a great new asset for our PDHPE department, sporting and school events. Retractable tiered seating is a welcome feature for our awards ceremonies, celebration days and large community gatherings.
The college delivers technology subjects in specialist facilities, including state-of-the-art domestic and commercial kitchens for the popular Hospitality courses, and a fully-equipped on-site farm serves Primary Industries and Agriculture studies.
The Chevalier College Highlands Trades Skills Centre opened in 2015 – a contemporary learning space for Construction and Primary Industries.

A purpose-built English and History wing was opened for these faculties in 2012.
Sporting activities received an upgrade in 2016 with new amenities to serve the playing fields on the western side of the college.
McGrath Hall seats up to 700 guests for sit-down dinners and is the venue for our annual Presentation Ball and Valedictory Dinners. Many of our community events, masses, liturgies, assemblies, musical plays and awards ceremonies are held here with seating for up to 1400 at these events. The hall also caters for our PDHPE classes and as an inside sports centre for gymnastics, basketball, netball and volleyball.
The Chevalier College Function Room is used for dinners, talks, workshops and displays throughout the year.
Weddings, baptisms and funerals are regularly held at Prentice and Riversdale Chapels.
